August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was
 
Glenda
 
with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals.
Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store.
 
Here is Glenda's winning card
 
 
The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean.
 
 
This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!

 
Rhonda's card using one of my favourite dies in turquoise and white, again with some lovely punched borders.

 
Dorothy's card is simply elegant using Spellbinders Bracket Borders in pretty lilac and white.

 
Another card by Rhonda, again in luscious colours and this time a stamped image, coloured with Copics.

 
 
Another entry from Glenda, this time using ribbon and a stunning die from Memory Box. I love the coloured flowers and glass embellishment on this card too.


 
 
A border of Hobby Dots was the theme for Maralene's card and some of my favourite colours - pink, purple and blue. Beautiful!

 
Last but by no means least, another entry from Rhonda. This time using blues, browns and white. A simple border using Spellbinders Bracket Borders, but it really sets the card off. All hand made flowers too (except for the brown ones).

 
Thanks again everyone. I say it every time but you amaze me with your ideas. I can't wait to see what next month brings :)
